This is a fun quick stop with a couple historic buildings to see. There was a tour going on when we were there. It's a quick walk in.

This was a great hike! Start at the ranger station, hike around the pond, and then up to the 70 ft waterfall! Just great!

A lot of history in this place. The staff whom does the tour gives a lot of information. They are also trails which you hike.

This is worth going to just to see how well things have held up with these buildings and surrounding grounds.

We did not get to the station display till 20 mins. to closing. Ranger was leaving when we walked up to station. There is information history signs to read about the blockhouse and brick home. They were both locked so just walked around and looked at outside. Grounds well kept. Read that the buildings r open and tours on weekends. Would like to see inside and hear more info. We might have heard more from ranger on a weekday if we would have got there earlier.

Great area to bring the kids for a quick stop in. Easy walking with some up hill, but not bad. Wish we could see inside but understand. Nice parking area and hiking trails.

This park has two beautiful historic houses. They are well-kept. Signs tell the history of the houses. Note: after turning off Highway 11 onto Oconee Station Road, go about two miles and watch for the Oconee Station sign. At the sign, turn right to go to the station. We saw the sign, but did not realize we needed to turn right at the sign. We just thought the sign meant we were approaching Oconee Station. So, just watch out and be sure to turn at the sign.

This visit was part of helping our daughter and grandsons become SC Ultimate Outsiders by visiting all 47 parks. It was about 91 degrees outside but the 1790's militia outpost was comparatively cool with its walls over a foot thick. The grandsons imagined Revolutionary era defenders cooking in the fireplaces and we wondered how many slept there and they enjoyed a sense of awe at its 225 years. The William Richards House was also nice. Get a flashlight and peek into the unerhouse cellar. Very deep. We wondered if it was for storing trading post goods, foodstores, or serving as a frontier jail(or a combination of all three). The signage was informative. I would not be surprised to learn that the cedar tree by the house was over 200 yrs old as well. Neat site. Nice walk around. Allow at least 30 minutes.
